You wrote that you are running an Ubuntu, and I'm assuming that you have 
installed their default dhcp3-server package by now.

Then you need to look at the file "/etc/default/dhcp3-server", where you 
need to specify which interface the server should listen to. Most often, 
that should be "eth0", but check with the command "/sbin/ifconfig" to 
see which interfaces are available on your system.
